STEM Night Planning Meeting


MAR VISTA FAMILY STEM NIGHTMark your calendars! Our second Mar Vista Family STEM Night is scheduled for APRIL 17, 2015. This school-wide event features hands-on activities in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields.It takes many volunteers to make this event possible. We need people to plan and present hands-on STEM related stations, coordinate volunteers, be in charge of publicity, plan a dinner for the off-campus volunteers,   arrange for and set-up equipment, and many other important tasks. A background in a STEM related field is not necessary to be a help for this event.

Our next planning meeting is  WEDNESDAY, February 11, 2015 at 8:15 pm in the cafeteria following the MVSEG meeting.

Please sign up for STEM Night 2015 – here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:
